This book is the newest in the Elmer the patchwork elephant series. A large roar in the jungle is frightening the animals. They each run past Elmer as he heads towards the noise. Elmer is curious what could be making such a roar. Elmer comes upon a little blue creature who roars louder than Lion when he is afraid. Elmer comforts the creature and takes him back to his friends who welcome him with smiles.

The illustrations are very colorful and interesting although not quite the quality you see in the original Elmer book. This story is a great opportunity for discussing not judging people based on first appearances or on rumors. It also brings up the topic of bravery.

This would be great for ages preschool through 1st grade both as a read-a-loud and an early reader.
